Am I eligible for NDIS support?
To be eligible for help through NDIS, you must:
- Have a permanent and significant impairment that is likely to be with you for life
- Be up to the age of 65 when you register with NDIS
- Be an Australian citizen or have papers that allow you to live in Australia
- Be living in an area where NDIS services are provided.
You don’t have to be on a government pension or benefit to receive NDIS support.

What is an NDIS plan?
The NDIS will work out an individual plan based on your personal goals and your particular needs. Your plan could include the support you need from family and carers, community organisations (such as Challenge Community Services) as well as medical supports.

If I have an NDIS plan, can I still choose my own services?
Yes. You have control over your own plan. The NDIS provides money to certain approved service providers. If you have an NDIS plan, this means you don’t need to pay for these services. Challenge Disability Services is an approved provider under NDIS.
